  Mr. ROGERS of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I ask for the House's attention 
today to honor Mrs. Eula Mae Brewer Prophitt on the occasion of her 
110th birthday.
  Mrs. Prophitt was born in Our Town, Alabama. When she was nine, she 
went to live with her brother, James William Brewer, and at 11, she 
began working at Avondale Mills in Alexander City. In fact, Mrs. Eula 
Mae Prophitt worked in textile mills including Avondale Mills, Mr. 
Vernon Mills, M. Snower Mill, Pepperell Manufacturing Company, Swift 
Spinning Mills, and Opelika Manufacturing, until she retired at the age 
of 66.
  Eula Mae married Mr. Willis Guary Prophitt on March 10, 1923. They 
were blessed with four daughters, Ruby Frances, Mary Elisabeth, Willard 
Carolyn, and Dorothy Jeanette. Mrs. Prophitt has many grandchildren, 
great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
  Mrs. Prophitt served with her husband, a Church of God pastor, 
teaching young people in Sunday School for 37 years. She continued to 
independently maintain her home until age ninety, and now lives with 
her eldest daughter, Ruby. Mrs. Prophitt enjoys a little gardening and 
her beautiful flowers.
  Mr. Speaker, please join me in celebrating Mrs. Prophitt's 110th 
birthday. She is a blessing to her family and friends, and they plan to 
celebrate her birthday this Saturday, May 10th.

                          ____________________
